Inner Journey: THE PARADOX OF LIFE’S JOURNEY

“It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning.”
— P.D. Ouspensky

“All major mystical traditions have recognized that there is a paradox at the heart of the journey of return to Origin. …Put simply, this is that we are already what we seek, and that what we are looking for on thePath with such an intensity of striving and passion and discipline is already within and around us at all moments. The journey and all its different ordeals are all emanations of the One Spirit that is manifesting everything in all dimensions; every rung ofthe ladder we climb toward final awareness is made of the divine stuff of awareness itself; Divine Consciousness is at once creating and manifesting all things and acting in and as all things in various states of self-disguise throughout all the differentlevels and dimensions of the universe.”
— Andrew Harvey

“Look at you, you madman, Screaming you are thirsty And are dying in a desert when all around you there is nothing but water!”
— Kabir

“After changes upon changes, we are more or less the same.”
— Paul Simon

Challenge
“When people keep telling you that you can’t do a thing, you kind of like to try it.”

-Margaret Chase Smith, 1964


I guess this is a little like reverse psychology. When we are kids, if someone says “I dare you” it’s like a challenge that we can’t resist. Sometimes a challenge is just what we need to spur us on to what we really need to do for ourselves and our personal growth. Maybe it’s because we know someone is watching, that someone will notice. That’s just a part of being human. Whatever works!

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Thought For The Day: Sept. 24, 2020 “It’s Inside You”

Happy Thursday,

Today is a reminder to look for joy in the small things. Joy is not found in how much stuff you have or how much money you spend. It is not found by how many likes you get on a social media post. True joy lives within each of us. It is a choice that we make when we clearly see what truly matters. If you have been feeling down challenge yourself to find 3 small things that brought you joy today. Joy is everywhere if we open our minds and hearts!

Happy Tuesday,

Life is both a challenge and an adventure. Yesterday we talked about belief and how it changes us for the better. Today we are being asked to take up the challenge and continue to plant the seeds that will help us grow and move forward. Remember that things will get better and when they do you will also be a better version of yourself. One who is ready to step into a new future.

Thought For The Day: April 16, 2020 “Flights of Imagination”

Happy Thursday,

The power of music is an amazing thing. It can boost our mood and take us away to another place where we can let go of our worries. We all have our favorite genres. Today I challenge you to listen to something new. There are so many artists and styles to choose from so pick something that you have never listened to and let it open a whole new world!

Challenge Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for April 9, 2020

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves, the way we think and the way we do things. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


In soloing – as in other activities – it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it. – Amelia Earhart


49: Today the Universe is telling us that this is a good day to work on any incomplete projects or things that you’ve been putting off. By making time to tie up these loose ends we are clearing the way for new growth. The same goes for things that you may have tried and didn’t quite work out. If it’s something that has meaning to you it’s a good time to reexamine it and find what DID work and move on from there. Remember that this month is all about “Challenging Yourself” and embracing your power as a creator. Your spiritual support system is taking care of you. If you need help with creative solutions, focus or direction just ask. Grounding and centering before getting started will help the messages that you receive to come through more clearly. Making the most of today will benefit you in the near future.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

The Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. She tells us, “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Moss Agate. This gentle stone promotes new beginnings and can help release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways. Often referred to as the gardener’s stone Moss Agate helps us connect to nature, the earth, and our own inner garden as well. Carry it with you or wear it during times of new growth.

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.

Cerussite to keep us grounded, and stimulate new growth while teaching us to be flexible and how to adapt to the changes we have made.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. – Norman Vincent Peale


127:  Today a window will open which gives us a boost manifestation department. The key to this window lies in the belief in yourself and in your abilities. As always the Universe and its helpers are here to assist you. Their message for today is:  “Do not be afraid of being challenged. These challenges may test your faith but will make you stronger and help you on your path. “ Take time to re-affirm your goals and needs and infuse them with positive intent. Remember to also pay attention to any repetitive thoughts/ideas that you have as well as any divine guidance that you receive. Keep in mind that even though the results may not be visible to you yet the wheels are turning and things are happening. As we continue to make space and replace negatives with positives we find ourselves on an energetic upswing.


Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. He says ” Expand your mind and you will manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels.”

The Ascended Master Jesus helps us with all areas of faith and teaches us that true miracles often come in small packages. He also provides a clear and direct line of communication to the Divine as well as teaching us how to open up to receive divine information.

The Greek goddess Nike, Lady of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things that we have accomplished. By acknowledging them we can increase our faith in ourselves as a creator. She says: “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”

While Garnet is best known as a stone of protection it can benefit the use of our natural talents as well. It helps us to overcome any resistance we may have in using our gifts and promotes self-confidence. Garnet removes what no longer serves and mental self-sabotage. It promotes balance and clears and re-energizes the chakras.

daily Angel Message sms

Just Do It: Cat’s Angel Message for September 11, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


When in doubt, do it. – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.


911: The number 11 is a master number and today’s energy packs quite a punch. Since the number one indicates “new beginnings and taking action” these opportunities and the energy that pushes them toward us will be doubled. These things relate to all areas of our lives including path and purpose, and we are being reminded to stay focused on the things we want to create. Because of today’s energy things can manifest much quicker than normal. If you find yourself besieged by worry or doubt turn them over to the Goddess, Spirit or the Angels. Remember that you are worthy of these challenges and allow yourself to move forward and take action. Pay attention to any reoccurring thoughts and ideas and put the information that you receive to good use.


Archangel Raguel promotes feelings of empowerment and clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help you to reach your full potential. The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen. And the Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us in the setting and achieving of our goals by tapping into what we really want not just what sounds good. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”

daily Angel Message sms

You Are That Powerful: Cat’s Angel Message for April 25, 2019

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


You can live the life you love – even in the face of the most challenging circumstances. While sometimes it may appear that life throws more obstacles in your path than you can handle, you can always choose to be happy. Yes, you are that powerful. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


425: As we head towards the end of the month we are being asked to review our April theme: “We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.” Changes require courage and our spiritual helpers are gently reminding us that we are never alone and that hey are here to help with any changes that you are going through. You have grown enough to do what is necessary to make to make your life better, so use your Sacred Tools (faith, intuition) to make the changes that you need to continue your growth. Their message today is “Never be afraid of change. Embrace it and it will embrace you. Don’t fight these changes that are taking place as they are what you need to continue your growth cycle.”


Archangel Jeremiel teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us how to use the power of laughter when dealing with change. By not taking things so seriously we are able to find new avenues that will make change easier to manage. The Greek goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She helps us to release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition. She tells us: ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  Green Calcite which helps us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us. Iolite  is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion. It helps you stay true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others, and Peridot which helps to sharpen the mind and enhance our self confidence. It can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

Developing The Power: Cat’s Angel Message for April 9, 2019 

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Give yourself an even greater challenge than the one you are trying to master and you will develop the powers necessary to overcome the original difficulty. – William Bennett


49:  Today the Universe is telling us that this is a good day to work on any incomplete projects or things that you’ve been putting off. By making time to tie up these loose ends we are clearing the way for new growth and increased abundance to take place. The same goes for things that you may tried and didn’t quite work out. If it’s something that has meaning to you it’s a good time to reexamine it and find what DID work and move on from there. Remember that this month is all about “Challenging Yourself” and embracing your power as a creator. Your spiritual support system is taking care of you. If you need help with creative solutions, focus or direction just ask. Grounding and centering before getting started will help the messages that you receive to come through more clearly. Making the most of today will benefit you in the near future.


Archangel Raguel helps to promote cooperation and group harmony. He also acts a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves. Ask for help and he can help you realize your full potential. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And the Hawaiian goddess Pele tells us, “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Moss Agate which promotes new beginnings and helps us to release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward.  Tiger Iron ( a combination of Jasper, Hematite and Tiger’s Eye) helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier and Calcite which combats laziness and replaces it with motivation.
